About Sao Paulo

São Paulo and Rio couldn’t be any more different. Rio is hot, sexy and chaotic, knew for its sultry beaches and passionate samba. In São Paulo, residents of the seventh largest city in the world are more often than not found working, partly to maintain its distinction as the world's tenth richest city. That money gets a lot of impressive buildings, and visitors will appreciate the 70 shopping malls and dozens of business hotels that fill the Brazilian modernist architectural gems. As the cultural capital of Brazil, São Paulo boasts South America's most impressive collection of nightclubs, museums and theatres. The city is also South America's most gay-friendly; its Gay Pride Parade in October is the largest in the world, been recognized for draw up to 3 million folks. Dining tops most Paulistanos lists of things to do, as São Paulo has the best restaurant selection in the country, ranging from sushi to Brazilian chiropractor (steakhouses). São Paulo has the largest population of Italian descendants outside of Italy (six million), so try the famed pizza partisan.

Museum
The Sao Paulo Independence Park is made up of museums, gardens, Independence Square and the Independence Monument. In August 1989, it was declared one of the archaeological and cultural heritage of Brazil. In 1822, Brazil declared independence in Sao Paulo. In front of the museum, the Independence Square and the monument we saw were built to commemorate the 100th anniversary of independence. The characters and bronze statues on the tablet are commemorating Pedro I and famous people who contributed to the independence of Brazil. The basement of the monument houses the coffin of King Pedro and the Queen. The flame of the monument does not go out all the year round, echoing the Brazilian flag fluttering in the wind.

Monument
Architecture
The Independence Monument is located in the heart of Sao Paulo. The base of the monument is of a huge heart shape, with steps descending and a male tension. At the top of the monument is a group of figures, showing Pedro I's march to Rio de Janeiro. They look solemn. The flame of the monument does not go out all the year round, echoing the Brazilian flag fluttering in the wind, and it is thought-provoking.
